Challenge Day Two - Beer Sheva to Ein Bokek

Cycling Route

148.3 km
1,345 m
On Tuesday, Challenge will ride from our hotel in Beer Sheva all the way to Ein Bokek. Along the way we will traverse the Maktesh Gadol (Giant Crater,) a unique geological formation caused by massive underground erosion. By the time we descend the last 25 kilometers (15 miles) to the lowest place on Earth, we will deserve the cold beers waiting for us at our hotel.
